Hyperhidrosis Treatment

Hyperhidrosis Treatment

Sweating helps the body stay cool. Most people may sweat more when:

The temperature is warm
Exercising
Nervous, angry, embarrassed, or afraid

Excessive or extreme sweating can occur without triggers or other cause. This is called primary hyperhidrosis.

The cause appears to be overactive sweat glands.
It seems to run in families and often begins in childhood or adolescence.
It most often involves the hands, feet, underarms, and face.
Increased sweating may also be the result of another medical condition. Common conditions include:

Anxiety
Brain and nerve disorders, such as stroke, spinal cord injury, nerve injury, head trauma, and Parkinson disease
Certain cancers
Chronic alcohol abuse (sweating is mostly on the palms or soles)
Diabetes
Heart disease
Overactive thyroid
Medicines used to treat Alzheimer disease, depression, and pain
Menopause
Obesity
Personality problems or phobias do not seem to be a cause of excessive sweating.

Symptoms
Most people with primary hyperhidrosis sweat from only one or two areas of the body:

The palms, feet, underarms, or head are the most common areas. Sweating will be on both sides of the body at the same time.
The rest of the body remains dry.
Sweating is absent during sleep. It occurs at least once a week or more often.
Less commonly, excessive sweating may be present in many areas of the body.
Sweating occurs even when you are not exerting yourself.
The main symptom of hyperhidrosis is wetness. Sweating can be so heavy that:

It is hard to use a keyboard or turn a doorknob.
Sweat may soak through clothes.
Skin problems may also result from the extreme sweating. These include infections and breakdown of the skin.
Many people with this condition feel embarrassment, stress, and worry, which affect their social and work lives.

Sweating caused by other medical problems:

Tends to involve the entire body
Often occurs during sleep as well as at other times

Hyperhydrosis treatment eliminates excessive sweating and foul odor of underarms, palms or soles thru botulinum toxin micro-injections. Procedure is done first by doing a starch test to properly asses if the treatment is best for you. Then botulinum toxin is introduced thru microinjections on the area of concern (axilla or underarms, palms or sole). Sweating may start to cease in as fast as 24 hours and may last upto 6 months.
